Upcoming Internal Audits and Evaluations - 2016–17 Report on Plans and Priorities - Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat

Upcoming Internal Audits and Evaluations Over the Next Three Fiscal Years

A. Internal audits

The Report on Plans and Priorities includes internal audits that are currently underway or planned for 2016– and 2017–. Additions and adjustments to the internal audits listed below may occur in order to address emerging risks and priorities of the Secretariat.

Title of internal audit Internal audit type Status Expected completion date
Low Dollar Value Contracting Acquisition Services In progress
Information Technology Security (coordinated with Shared Services Canada) Information Technology Services In progress
Information Management Within the Secretariat Information Management Services Planned (recurring in 2016– and 2017–) and
The Secretariat’s Internal Control Framework for the Public Service Dental Care Plan Public Service Employer Payments Planned
Employee Performance Management Processes Within the Secretariat Human Resources Management Services Planned
Information Technology Security Information Technology Services Planned (recurring in 2016– and 2017–) and
The Secretariat’s Single Window Model for Treasury Board Submissions (joint project with the evaluation function) Decision-Making Support and Oversight Planned

The requirement to remain responsive and flexible to the Secretariat’s evolving needs limits the audit function’s ability to forecast plans beyond the 2016– time frame. Future risk-based audit planning exercises will identify projects for 2016– and 2017– based on risk assessments, departmental priorities and resource capacity closer to these respective years.

The following evaluations are planned over the next three fiscal years. Additions or adjustments will be made to address emerging priorities.
